KSPOur guests: Grigory Gladkov, Natalya Dudkina

KSP-South is a group of enthusiastic people that organizes biannual gatherings called Slyots (literally translated as “fly-ins”) and helps unite all Russian-speaking people who enjoy the Russian style of camping.

KSP in translation stands for the Club of Amateur Song. These songs are usually written by average people about their ordinary lives, yet the simple human experience of each song is translated into a powerful message of wisdom and truth, about the value of friendship, family, and love.

Slyots of KSP-South are held twice a year, and organizers try very hard to make everyone feel welcome, even those whose song selection varies slightly from the traditional KSP style. By bringing together the Russian speaking community, KSP-South not only allows them to experience their culture, but also to expose their spouses, children and friends to this beautiful Russian tradition.

With questions write to us at KSPsouth@gmail.com or call at 713-395-3301. Also, if you (or someone you know) would like to receive email reminders from us regarding KSP events, please let us know.

After most people settle in, there will be a Guest Concert at 10 PM where participants have a chance to enjoy the works of festival invited guests from far away states and/or countries. On Saturday morning people who arrived the night before enjoy the outdoors and meet their neighbors, as others enjoy the yoga class on the lawn or continue arriving. Children’s Camp opens at noon offering fun active games. Also at noon adults are invited to participate in a friendly volleyball tournament or to play chess, checkers and dominoes in the pavilion. Usually, there is an additional activity for adults, different from slyot to slyot, organized during the day as well. The Children’s Concert begins at 2:30 PM where young talents get a chance to sing for us, followed by Russian Rock concert for teen and adults at 4:00PM.

It will consist of 2 parts, serious and funny, with a break for dinner, and will last approximately till midnight. After the concert everyone is invited to join one the circles around the campfires for more songs. There will be marked (on the map) locations as well as those that appear unplanned but nevertheless very much appreciated. Sunday is the “move-out” day, as people exchange contact information and sing last few songs before leaving the festival. Sometimes, although rare, there are additional activities planned for Sunday late morning as well.

  • Folding chairs or mats for the concerts.
  • Camping equipment: tents, mattresses, sleeping bags, pots and pans, flashlights, lanterns, charcoal, plates, cups and utensils.

However, most non-Russian speakers that attend our festivals seem to choose to be in the middle of all the action, and we do not mind. Just mention at the gate where you prefer to camp.

It is recommended, however, to groups of 3+ tents to make a campsite reservation. To do so, please send the name of your group (come up with a fun name), expected number of tents, the preferred location (quiet/singing zone), and name/cell phone number of personal responsible for the group to KSPsouth@gmail.com.

Stary Olsa: Music from the Heart of Europe

GrafWHEN: Wednesday, March 22, 8:30p.m.

WHERE: The Continental Club – 3700 Main St. Houston, TX 77002

ADMISSION: $10
BUY TICKETS ONLINE

Belarusian band “Stary Olsa” occupies a unique position at the intersections where past meets present, tradition mingles with innovation, and contemporary creative expression has demanded the cultivation of skills that date back to the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

It is a diverse group of musicians who share a common love of history. They play bagpipes, flutes, shaums, lute, rebec, tromba marina, and percussion (including wooden shoes), with front man Aleys belting out vocals in Belarusian.

The band has recorded twelve albums of traditional Belarusian ballads, martial songs, and canticles in addition to popular European songs from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

Their most current album “Medieval Classic Rock,” was something crazy and new: they “covered” some modern rock songs on their primitive instruments.

Stary Olsa’s aim is to not only introduce U.S. audiences to the beauty of the Belarusian culture and the richness of its age-old musical traditions, but also show how much it has in common with modern rock classics.
